A Very Scary Christmas: A Scriborium Short Story Anthology


A Very Scary Christmas
A Scriborium Short Story Anthology

A collection of short stories by members of the Scriborium Writers’ Guild.

What happens when you take seven published, but not yet well known authors, and give them this charter with a tight deadline: Write a short story in the horror or paranormal genre with a Christmas angle? This collection is the result and it is amazing how each has found a different theme to explore, yet the series feels like they knew each other well.

Some of the stories are scarier than others. Some are shorter than others. It all depends on your own background and point of view, yet all make for a pleasant read, especially during the holiday times. So curl up by the fire with your very own copy and enjoy a story each night.

Editor: Kyra Dawson
Writers: Mark Sheldon, William Topek, Rosie Reay, Sean Hayden, Athol Foden, David Govett, Kyra Dawson

ISBN: 978-0-9710157-6-0

Product Description

A Very Scary Christmas

A Scriborium Short Story Anthology

Editor in Chief: Kyra Dawson

A Collection of Scary Christmas stories for the whole family.

(not recommended for younger children)

Antho2011Cover560This is the first of what we hope will be an annual anthology of short stories by members of the Scriborium Writer’s Guild. The only instructions were that it should be a short story in the horror or paranormal genre, with some sort of Christmas connection.

Amazingly, the seven stories here seem to have a similar tone and pace, even though the writers by and large don’t know each other, and most have not worked together before. So you can read them one by one in any order, or you can sit down and read it like a novel with some very divergent scenes.

The Scriborium Guild is a loose collection of independent writers and authors and editors, most of whom have been published but are not yet famous. We strive to help one another through this interactive society with articles and references, as well as occasionally a real challenge – like writing a short story for this anthology – at short notice and in a genre that may be new to you!

We do say writers and authors as some of our members are keener on short stories, magazine writing or journalism, while others aspire to write for TV or film.ScriboriumGuildMember copy
